  • Fire Chief's Maltese Cross

    This is a custom order that I just finished for the mother of a fire chief in New Hampshire. It's the only Maltese Cross that I've come across that is blue with a red border. The border is padauk, the bugles are yellow heart, the lettering is aspen and the blue wood is very splotchy blue pine that I enhanced with Minwax water soluble stain. The color is stone. It came closer to matching the blue pine than I expected it would.

      That turned out absolutely awesome! I'm in NH and work with many chiefs regularly, I wonder if it's anyone I know? I'll be keeping my eyes open for it when I'm in the various stations.

        Don, It's Rick at Chester FD. If you know him and see him in the next week or so, don't blow the surprise for his Mom.

            That will surely be a treasured piece. Looks wonderful.

                  Them horns in the middle look like they could be a bit of a pain to do. You did an excellent job with them and the rest too, it will be something they will always enjoy.

                      Thanks! It would have been easier if he'd been a Lieutenant instead of the Chief. Lieutenants only have one bugle!

                        Hey Amica - very nice work indeed!
                        Once folks see this at the station I wouldn't be surprised if you end up getting more orders. Take this as a warning - LOL!

                        So I guess the Chiefs are hornier than the Lieutenants?

                            Thanks for the cheery words, my friends. Guess I'll have to let them know I only make one of anything! I learned my lesson making croc puzzles thanks to my pal JohnB.

                              Just Wondering...

                              Is the table size on the 22" hegner saw as on the 18" hegner saw?

                              With the 22" inch one you get 4 more inches of depth of cut but do you also get a few more inches of table?

                              I had to fool around with copying and taping a pattern again today. This wasn’t as bad as the fish, but still a pain. I use rapid resizer. Scan a pattern, put in size I want and it prints it out. If more than one page, it numbers each page at the top and I tape them together. Had the fish pattern...

                              Rolf, I cover it with clear contact paper (comes off clean without leaving a residue) and draw a grid for the direction I want to cut (ie horizontal or diagonal) to keep the rows even. The rest is all freehand....

                              I use acrobat reader. The poster feature will enlarge and if it goes to multiple pages it will put in cut marks. Even if the page is over letter size it will spread to multiple pages at 100%.
